HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Spring — the time of fertility and rebirth in nature — has sprung in the Tennessee Valley.

A keen-eyed employee spotted this robin making her home on a cable reel on the WHNT News 19 patio over the weekend. Mama robin has been very protective of her nest, and for good reason!

Wednesday morning, little peeps could be heard coming from the nest.

Mama robin is working hard to keep her family fed right now. We set up a GoPro live stream if you’re interested in seeing what she’s up to.

We’ll check in on the baby birds from time to time in this live stream. At other times, it will show newscasts and weather coverage.
